Welcome back to the road again…

For those interested in such things I have recently finished adding old blog entries and photos to this site – everything from our trips to the Middle East in 2008, SE Asia in 2008 and South America in 2009.

As far what comes next, after a quiet summer from a travel perspective (Laynni recently enjoyed a raucous girls’ weekend in Canmore but declined to write about it, or share photos) in a couple days we fly to Mongolia to start a fairly hectic but hopefully amazing 3 1/2 months in Asia. After a few weeks of trekking, horses and the Gobi desert we’ll be making a brief stop in Beijing, a place I’ve heard has this semi-interesting and really large wall, then it’s back to Nepal for a 3rd time. Everest Base Camp, your time has finally come. And we are well-stocked with Hot Shots to prove it. From there it’s Bhutan, where we will do even more high altitude trekking, this time in a place where they measure something called Gross National Happiness, where television only arrived in 1999 and smoking has been illegal nationwide since 2010. We’re anticipating a unique experience, to say the least.

Then we suspect that shivering in our merino wool clothing and down sleeping bags will have begun to grow tiresome, so we have a nice few week stretch planned in Southern Thailand, completely vegging out on a couple of their fabulously lazy islands. Throw in a couple stops in Bangkok, a short foray into the ancient and controversial kingdom of Myanmar nee Burma, a few presumably terrific days visiting old friends in Hong Kong, and voila, back home for xmas. Sounds easy enough, wouldn’t you say.

Next up – stories of awe and discomfort in Mongolia. Can’t wait.

    1. Thanks, buddy! Although I will say that if Mongolia was really at the top of your list we’d be seeing you there next week… Enjoy Russia, as much as one can, and study our schedule to see if anything else suits your fancy. Say hi to Henrik from us!
